    Well, been getting this one ready for a while. 350 Chevrolet crate, Doug Thorley headers, BB oil pump, roller timing chain, Edelbrock 600 cfm and 4-bolt main. Otherwise stock except the bling bling and blower. E.T.C. about June. Need a concrete floor on the soon to come building. (Ain't rolling stuff around on the grass and gravel any longer.) To time consuming and to much extra effort involved. [​IMG]

    Well, the '73 is my DD so I was thinking '75, if it is problem free, maybe swap to the DD and get a 383 or sumptin' then.

    It's only like 4 psi with the pulley I got. Not sure of the Torque/Horsepower as there are so many variables. I had to get a MSD box which retards timing as the boost comes up.

    It is a belt driven muffler. It spins up and pops out when the pressure reaches 159 PSI.
